Our Best Ideas for Lasagna

Lasagna is one of our favorite pasta dishes. It’s perfect for feeding a big crowd and a hit at potlucks. But most people reserve it for a weekend cooking project or Sunday dinner since it can be time-consuming to construct. When the craving hits midweek, we’ve got you covered. This easy lasagna recipe has everything we love (tender pasta, creamy ricotta and a rich tomato sauce) but it comes together in under an hour thanks to no-boil lasagna noodles and store-bought marinara. We zhuzh up the sauce with a glug of balsamic vinegar and a good swirl of butter, then a simple mix of ricotta, mozzarella and Parmesan brings it all together. Bake it for a half hour and voila! A family-friendly weeknight dinner that everyone will love.

White Lasagna

The best white lasagna has layers of tender noodles, meaty white Bolognese, creamy bechamel and plenty of mozzarella and Parmesan. This recipe has it all. You won’t miss the tomatoes—we promise! We top it all off with more cheese, then bake until melty and irresistibly golden brown. Serve it alongside a bright, crunchy salad for an impressive, family-friendly meal.

The Best Lasagna

We created this classic lasagna with a homemade beef ragu. Simmered gently on the stovetop, the sauce develops a meaty richness while letting the brightness of the tomatoes shine through. The ricotta filling is mixed with nutty Parmesan to add flavor and to temper the sharpness of the garlic. We worked hard to get the right balance of ricotta and tomato sauce in the layers of this traditional lasagna, since each element has its own voice. Our recipe uses less mozzarella than many other versions – we prefer the creaminess of ricotta over the stringiness of melted mozzarella. Look for shorter lasagna noodles at the store – you won't need to cut them when assembling the final dish.
